Little Person In The Well - Poem by Jessie Li here

Little person in the well
Why are you still here
Is life so hard to look at
You must linger here

Must you be out of sight
From something with no eyes

Little person in the well
Why are you still here
Is life so hard to look upon
That you must linger here

Little person in the shadows
Why are you sitting here
Is life so hard to look upon
That you must hide in the shadows

Must you hide so nothing can find you
When nothing's searching

Little person in the shadows
Why are you sitting here
Is life so hard to look upon
That you must hide in the shadows

Little person running on
Why don't you ever stop
Is life so hard to look upon
That you must keep running from it

You run from every thing
When nobody's chasing you

Little person running on
Why don't you ever stop
Is life so hard to look upon
That you must keep running from it

The little person in the well
Has a secret to share
The little person hiding in the dark
Has a secret to be told
The little person always running
Has a secret thats never been heard

The little people that you hear of
Are just like me

    a lovely exploration
    of what needs
    to be said
    to speak the words
    for all to hear
    a fine poem
